The folding windshield kind of lost it's practicality with the advent of the mandatory roll bars.

(Anyone remember when the (optional) roll bar became standard? Mid 70's?)

At least the cj/tj/yj/lj had flat windshields. I just don't like the look of the jk with the windshield down.

I'd miss the full size spare. Maybe I'd get used to a donut spare, depends where it gets stowed, I guess.

I'm a little annoyed with the way they are re-using the name "renegade", too.

I'm not too worried about the windshield or spare tire. It'll be all of one week before someone starts selling a bumper with a carrier anyway. I'm just relieved it'll have solid axles and removable doors.
